He came to live, die, and rise up-why?


There are so many reasons given for this season. The reality is simple. Scripture declares that a son would be born and “he will save his [all] people from their sins.” If sin did not exist there would be no reason for the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Sin is the reason why we have the season. A grace is the result of this stupendous gift of love for which there is no human reason. Why would anyone die for a person who hates them” Romans 5 clarifies why?

For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life (7-10).

That is why I praise Him and that is why this season is so important. No, we do not know the exact date of the birth of the Lord. Yes, someone chose this date. Yes, it is similar to Saturnalia. No, we are not worshipping foreign Gods on this date we are remembering God’s decision to send his only son in the form of a helpless baby a long time ago. We are remembering the eternal promise that is attached to that birth, death, and resurrection, but more importantly, we are remembering that without that birth we would not have an opportunity to experience eternal life.

23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Ro 6)

He is not a baby anymore He is Messiah!
